Day 9 - A picture of your make up Collection

Wednesday, May 15

It's been a long time since this challenge have gone over me.. =)

I know I was not able to keep up with the 30 day challenge (make up) on my blog due to long hours of work plus the time I have to keep up with my beloved son Adi.




He is growing up so fast, that being not able to see him most of the time is killing me.

I work 9.6 hours that 48 hours in a week and it is a struggle to keep a blog, a job and also take care of my son. But that part is what makes me feel that I am a super mom. I guess?!! It's never an easy job but the most rewarding of all.

I guess I might as well proceed with the post. Enough of the mommy rants, I'd rather post a separate one for that too. You know, i love my son so much and I miss him ALL THE TIME.

For you who have or might have been interested to see my makeup collection, scroll down below. =)
Most of them I got from AVON


                            these are some of my eyeshadows and eyeliners, eye primer, blending brush, etc. i got the palette from chic cosmetics. so far, the colors are good but some of the colors are chalky =(
.
my makeup collection!. all sorts of them =) i actually love eye shadows. and lipsticks. I am also on the look out for the perfect foundation that is why i haven't got hold of them yet. that liquid foundation I got from AVON. I'll do a review on that soon. I have been using it for a month now and so far I am loving it!

that's it for me.
hope you enjoyed reading!

Skin Care: Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize

Wednesday, April 3

I have been starting to get conscious about my face since I have places my utmost closest attention on facial products especially make up. At the age of 26 and turning 27, I know I have aged and had to take care of my precious face.

I really aspire to have that flawless skin but unfortunately I don't. My face is no exception and it frustrates me sometimes to see those blackheads and oiliness that comes with it. My T-Zone is like so shiny you can swipe an oil blotting sheet and get it damped right then and there.

So, to end this misfortune that I so call, I am immensely taking this beauty ritual on a regular basis. I usually do just wash my face with just soap and water but then, I wanted to get that smooth and blemish free skin. I know sometimes I do have an unhealthy diet and I bet I should also start there. I'd like to take that opportunity to finally be conscious of what I eat. Maybe I'll do a separate challenge for that after this Skin Care 101 stabilizes and be part of my routine.

If only I have all the means to find and get a hand at all the Beauty products and facial treatments I would love to. But for now, let me just stick to these products that are affordable and somehow really work for me and my skin type. =)

First Step: Cleanse
I use the cleanser from the Tea Tree facial care set from AVON and the Eskinol Deep Cleanse Facial Cleanser. First, I wash my face with the tea tree cleanser. I love it cause it has micro beads present that will really get down on the pores of your face, but I only get a pea-sized amount. What i don't like about it is that it is quite rocky and somewhat strong on the skin but for me it just serves its purpose since I have an oily type of skin. It feels really refreshing after washing my face with it.


What I use for my face after washing and scrubbing is the Deep Cleanser from Eskinol, I love this product since it can gently clean away dirt and makeup on your face. Plus it also prevents blackheads and also whitens! =) This is what I am using as of the moment but the one in green variant is what I really love.


Second Step: Tone

After all the scrubbing and those deep cleansing on our pores, we need to apply a toner to tone down the pores of our skin. Toners help to close out the pores and get that smooth and flawless face. What I am using as the moment is the one from PONDs. It is an oil solution toner, perfect for my oily skin. What I don't like about this product is that is that stingy feel after I placed some on my face. I prefer the one from AVON though since it is much gentler and has that soothing effect on my face right after application. I can feel my skin now and has soften and is much smoother. Makes me want to purchase toners from AVON. For only 129 pesos why not.


Final Step: Moisturize

I love this moisturizer! I use it for day time and I apply it before my liquid foundation. It sits perfectly and it whitened my skin. I love this product so much! It also has SPF great for the sun's heat especially when i am out for errands.


AVON Rose and Rose hips whitening cream

And here is a look of my face after a 2 weeks of using the cleanser and toner products. For the moisturizer, i have used it for a month now and I would definitely repurchase. I can't go out without it. =)

Challenge: DAY 8 - Fave Daytime Look

Monday, March 11

Hi!!

How are you doing? Today, I am posting for Day 8 of my 30 Day Makeup Challenge.
My favorite day time look is the Natural Look, which is what most of the ladies should be sporting.
We know that we don't want to look very clownish when it comes to putting on makeup.

We should feel comfortable about how we look and somehow flaunt our natural beauty and facial features.
Want to achieve that Natural Look?



Here is a video from Julianne Kaye of Maybelline New York:

Day 6 - Are you into False eyelashes?

Friday, February 8

Hi Good Day to all my readers!

How's your day been?

Today I will be posting Day 6 of my 30 day Makeup Challenge.

ANSWER:

I have been viewing a lot of make up tutorials in you tube in the likes of noe of colorismyweapon, ana patricia and a whole lot more...

For me false eyelashes are essential to achieve those striking eyes but I don't deem it to be a necessity for everyday use.

Practically speaking, I don't use it for the purpose of beauty but because I work in the office and most of the time I spend facing the computer.

But I would love to try those too, I would prefer the natural hair ones since it would look like my lashes and not so overdo my everyday look. =)
